An important element of phishing defenses for any organization, large or small, is DMARC email authentication.
DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance. Its main purpose is to mitigate phishing attacks that spoof an organization’s domain and get those emails delivered to inboxes.
Protect Your Business Brand
Email security is important for keeping your employees and customers safe from cybercriminals who might try to steal personal information. Take, for example, someone who sends an email on behalf of your company. It fails DMARC, which means you can take an authoritative action. DMARC is an added layer of email security that can help stop spam and phishing in their tracks, helping companies protect their brands and reputation.
With DMARC, organizations can create a record of authorized senders from their domain, helping to prevent misuse of a company’s brand in phishing attacks. When configured on top of existing SPF and DKIM records, it helps confirm whether one or both of the authentication checks have failed.
Benefits of Using DMARC
Here are 5 great reasons to start utilizing DMARC:
- Increase deliverability rates and reduce bounce rates
- Receive comprehensive reports of how email messages are authenticated
- Identify spammers and prevent malicious emails from reaching inboxes
- Reduce the chances of your company’s emails from getting flagged as spam
- Gain better visibility and authority over your domains
